Network > TCP/IP Advanced.
For more information, please see NAT traversal (port mapping) for IPv4, on page 41. See also AXIS Internet Dynamic DNS Service at
www.axiscam.net For Technical notes on this and other topics, visit the Axis Support web at www.axis.com\techsup
Set the root password
To gain access to the Axis product, you must set the password for the default administrator user root. This is done in the Configure
Root Password dialog, which appears when the product is accessed for the first time.
To prevent network eavesdropping, the root password can be set via an encrypted HTTPS connection, which requires an HTTPS
certificate. HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol over SSL) is a protocol used to encrypt traffic between web browsers and servers. The
HTTPS certificate ensures encrypted exchange of information.
To set the password via a standard HTTP connection, enter it directly in the first dialog.
To set the password via an encrypted HTTPS connection, follow these steps:
1. Click Create self-signed certificate.
2. Provide the requested information and click OK. The certificate is created and the password can now be set securely. All
traffic to and from the product is encrypted from this point on.

The video compression standard H.264 makes good use of bandwidth, and can provide high quality video streams at less than 1 Mbit/s.
Deciding which combination of protocols and methods to use depends on your viewing requirements, and on the properties of
your network. The available options in AXIS Media Control are:
Unicast RTP
This unicast method (RTP over UDP) is used
for live unicast video, especially when it is
important to always have an up-to-date video
stream, even if some images are dropped.
RTP over RTSP
This unicast method (RTP tunneled over RTSP)
is useful as it is relatively simple to configure
firewalls to allow RTSP traffic.
RTP over RTSP over HTTP
This unicast method can be used to traverse
firewalls. Firewalls are commonly configured to
allow the HTTP protocol, thus allowing RTP to
be tunneled.
Multicast RTP
This method (RTP over UDP) should be used for live multicast video. The video stream is always
up-to-date, even if some images are dropped.
Multicasting provides the most efficient usage of bandwidth when there are large numbers of
clients viewing simultaneously. A multicast cannot however, pass a network router unless the
router is configured to allow this. It is not possible to multicast over the Internet, for example.
Note also that all multicast viewers count as one unicast viewer in the maximum total of 20
simultaneous connections.
Unicasting is used for video-on-demand
transmission so that there is no video traffic
on the network until a client connects and
requests the stream.
Note that there are a maximum of 20
simultaneous unicast connections.
AXIS Media Control negotiates with the Axis product to determine the transport protocol to use. The order of priority, listed in the
AMC Control Panel, can be changed and the options disabled, to suit specific requirements.
Note
H.264 is licensed technology. The Axis product includes one H.264 viewing client license. Installing additional unlicensed
copies of the client is prohibited. To purchase additional licenses, contact your Axis reseller.
MJPEG
This format uses standard JPEG still images for the video stream. These images are then displayed and updated at a rate sufficient
to create a stream that shows constantly updated motion.
The Motion JPEG stream uses considerable amounts of bandwidth, but provides excellent image quality and access to every image
contained in the stream. The recommended method of accessing Motion JPEG live video from the Axis product is to use the AXIS
Media Control in Internet Explorer in Windows.
AXIS Media Control (AMC)
AXIS Media Control (AMC) in Internet Explorer in Windows is the recommended method of accessing live video from the Axis product.

Image
You can modify the image resolution and compression, and rotate the image from the Image tab (Video & Audio > Video Stream).
Setting the compression level affects the image quality and bandwidth; the lower the compression, the higher the image quality
with higher bandwidth requirements.
To avoid bandwidth problems on the network, you can limit the frame rate allowed to each viewer. The maximum frame rate can be
set to Unlimited, or you can limit the frame rate to a value.
An image or text can be superimposed over the image as overlay. See Overlay, on page 19.
Save your settings before they can take effect.
H.264
H.264, also known as MPEG-4 Part 10/AVC, is a video compression standard that provides high quality video streams at low bit rates.
An H.264 video stream consists of different types of frames such as I-frames, P-frames and B-frames. An I-frame is a complete image
whereas P-frames and B-frames only contain the differences from previous/future frames.
The GOV length is the number of frames between two consecutive I-frames. Increasing the GOV length may save considerably on
bandwidth requirements in some cases, but may also have an adverse affect on image quality.
The bit rate can be set as Variable Bit Rate (VBR) or Constant Bit Rate (CBR). VBR adjusts the bit rate according to the image
complexity, using up more bandwidth for increased activity in the image, and less for lower image activity. CBR allows you to set a
fixed Target bit rate that consumes a predictable amount of bandwidth. As the bit rate would usually need to increase for increased
image activity, but in this case cannot, frame rate and image quality are affected negatively. To partly compensate for this, it is
possible to prioritize either frame rate or image quality. Not setting a priority means that frame rate and image quality are equally
affected. You must save your settings before they can take effect.
The current bit rate can be set to appear as text overlay. To do this, select the Include text check box option under Overlay
Settings and enter the modifier#b in the field.
MJPEG
Sometimes the image size is large due to low light or complex scenery. Adjusting the maximum frame size helps to control the
bandwidth and storage used by the Motion JPEG video stream in these situations. Setting the frame size to the Default setting
provides consistently good image quality at the expense of increased bandwidth and storage usage in low light. Limiting the frame
size optimizes bandwidth and storage usage, but may give poor image quality. To prevent increased bandwidth and storage usage,
the maximum frame size should be set to an optimal value.
Stream Profiles
There are four pre-programmed stream profiles available for quick set up. The settings for these can be adjusted. New customized
profiles can also be created. Each profile has a descriptive name, indicating its purpose.
•
The stream profiles can be accessed from the Stream profile drop-down list in the Live View page.
•
To add, copy, modify, and remove stream profiles go to Video & Audio > Stream Profiles.
•
To select the default stream profile go to Live View Config > Stream Profile and choose the profile from the drop-down list.

Camera Settings
The Video & Audio > Camera Settings page provides access to advanced image settings for the Axis product.
17
AXIS P5532 PTZ Dome Network Camera
Video and Audio
Image Appearance
Increasing the Color level increases the color saturation. The value 100 gives maximum color saturation. The value 0 gives a
black and white image.
The image Brightness can be adjusted in the range 0–100, where a higher value produces a brighter image.
Increasing the Sharpness can increase bandwidth usage. A sharper image might increase image noise especially in low light
conditions. A lower setting reduces image noise, but the whole image will appear less sharp.
White balance
White balance is used to make colors in the image appear the same regardless of the color temperature of the light source. The Axis
product can be set to automatically identify the light source and compensate for its color. Alternatively, select the type of light
source from the drop-down list. For a description of each available setting, see the online help
.
Wide Dynamic Range (Dynamic Contrast)
Wide dynamic range (Dynamic Contrast) can improve the exposure when there is a considerable contrast between light and dark
areas in the image. In intense backlight conditions, enable WDR. Disable WDR In low light conditions for optimal exposure.
Note
This setting is only possible when using automatic exposure control.
Exposure Settings
Configure the exposure settings to suit the image quality requirements in relation to lighting, frame rate and bandwidth
considerations.
Exposure control - These settings is used to adapt to the amount of light used. Automatic is the default settings can be used in most
situations. The shutter speed is automatically set to produce optimum image quality.
Max exposure time - Select the maximum exposure time from the drop-down list. Increasing the exposure time will improve
image quality, but decrease the frame rate. There may also be an increase in motion blur. Checking Allow slow shutter decreases
the shutter speed in low light to improve image brightness.
Enable Backlight compensation - Enable this option if a bright spot of light, for example a light bulb, causes other areas in
the image to appear too dark.
Exposure zones - This settings determines which part of the image is used to calculate the exposure. For most situations, the Auto
setting can be used. For particular requirement, select a predefined area.
Max gain - Measured in decibels (dB), gain describes the amount of amplification applied to a signal, in this case the visual
information in the image. A high level of amplification may provide a better image in very low light situations. A high gain will also
increase the amount of image noise.
Day/Night
The IR cut filter prevents infrared (IR) light from reaching the image sensor. In poor lighting conditions, for example at night, or
when using an IR lamp, set the IR cut filter to Off. This increases light sensitivity and allows the product to “see” infrared light. The
image is shown in black and white when the IR cut filter is off.
If using automatic Exposure control, set the IR cut filter to Auto to automatically switch between On and Off according to the
lighting conditions.
Image settings
Autofocus enabled - Automatic focusing is enabled by default. If the focus position is changed manually using the focus bar,
autofocus will be disabled even if enabled here. In this case, use the PTZ control panel to enable autofocus, see PTZ Controls, on page
10. If required, the focus control can be disabled under PTZ > Advanced > Controls.
18
AXIS P5532 PTZ Dome Network Camera
Video and Audio
Noise reduction - Set to On to enable noise reduction. Noise reduction may increase the amount of motion blur.
Stabilizer - When monitoring environments that are subject to vibrations (e.g. traffic control), images may appear to be unsteady.
Select the frequency, High or Low, that gives the best improvement in image quality. Enabling the stabilizer will limit the digital
zoom. See the online help
for more information.
Image freeze on PTZ - Select All movements to freeze the image while the camera is moving during a pan, tilt or zoom operation.
Once the camera reaches its new position, the view from that position is shown. Presets freezes the image only when the camera
moves between preset positions.
Overlay
Overlays can be used to provide extra information and are superimposed over the video image. With overlay text it is possible to
include date and time or view the current bit rate as overlay text.
To include the current bit rate as overlay text go to Video & Audio > Video Stream > Overlay Settings, select the Include text check
box option, and enter the overlay code in the field. See the online help
for supported formats.
Overlay image
An overlay image can be used to provide extra information, or to mask a part of the video image.
To use your own image, such as a logo, first upload the image to the Axis product. Go to Video & Audio > Overlay Image, click
Browse to locate the file and then click Upload. The file can then be selected from the Use overlay image drop-down list.

Privacy Mask
A privacy mask is an area of solid color that prohibits users from viewing parts of the monitored area. Privacy masks cannot be
bypassed via the VAPIX® Application Programming Interface (API).
The Privacy Mask List, Video & Audio > Privacy Mask, shows all the masks that are currently configured in the Axis product and
indicates if they are enabled.
The Pan/Tilt/Zoom coordinates of the privacy mask are locked in their position. This means that regardless of the angle and zoom
of the lens, the same place or object will be hidden. To define at what magnification the mask should be displayed, zoom to
the desired level and click Set level.

PTZ (Pan Tilt Zoom)
When using a joystick (or emulating one with the mouse) the Enable proportional speed setting can be used to reduce the maximum
pan/tilt movement speed, i.e. the speed the camera view moves at when the joystick is pushed all the way out in any direction. This is
useful then the view is zoomed in on an object.
When Enable Auto-flip is selected, the Axis product will simulate continuous pan movement in the same direction, i.e. the camera
will pan the full 360 degrees, even though there is a mechanical stop at ±180 degrees.
When Enable movement prediction is selected, the Axis product will attempt to predict the new position in the pan movement, after
compensating for the slight delay while the camera changes direction after an auto-flip. This is useful for tracking moving objects or
persons when using the joystick or emulated joystick mode.
See the online help
for more information.
Controls
Panel Shortcut Command Buttons can be configured to provide direct access to commands issued via the VAPIX® Application
Programming Interface. The buttons will be displayed in the PTZ control panel, which is available in the Live View page through
the Ctrl panel button, see page 10.
Deselect the options under Enable/Disable controls to disable the pan, tilt, zoom, focus and iris controls.
Note
Disabling PTZ controls will not affect preset positions. For example, if the tilt control is disabled, the product can still move to
preset positions that require a tilt movement.
Control Queue
The administrator can set up a queue for PTZ controllers from PTZ > Control Queue. Once set up, the PTZ Control Queue buttons
appear in the Live View page offering one viewer exclusive control for a limited period of time. Other users will be placed in queue.
A user who belongs to a group (see Users, on page 37) with a higher PTZ priority can go before other users in the queue and
take control of the product. The order of priority is as follows:
1. Administrator — An administrator takes over PTZ control regardless of who is first in queue. The administrator will be
removed from the queue 60 seconds after the last PTZ control command.
2. Event — The Axis product can be configured to go to a preset position when triggered by an alarm (see Events, on page 31).
The event will immediately be placed first in the queue except when an administrator is in control.
3. Operator — Same as administrator but with lower priority
4. Guard Tour — A guard tour (see page 26) has PTZ control for an indefinite period of time. It may be overridden by an
operator, event or administrator. The guard tour will resume when higher priority groups leave the queue.

Motion Detection
Motion detection is used to generate an alarm whenever movement occurs (or stops) in the view. Up to 10 Include and Exclude
windows can be configured:
•
Include windows — target specific areas within the whole video image
•
Exclude windows — define areas within an Include window that should be ignored (areas outside Include windows
are automatically ignored)
Once configured, motion detection windows appear in the list of Detectors in Action rule setup. See Setting Up an Action Rule, on
page 32.
Note
Using the motion detection feature may decrease the product’s overall performance.
Set up motion detection
To set up a motion detection Include Window, follow these instructions:
1. Go to Detectors > Motion Detection.
2. Select the Configure Included Windows option and click New. Select the new window in the list of windows and enter
a descriptive name.
3. Adjust the size (drag the bottom right-hand corner) and the position (click on the text at the top and drag to the desired
position) of the active window (window with red frame).
4. Adjust the Object Size, History and Sensitivity profile sliders (see Motion detection parameters for details). Any detected
motion within an active window is indicated by red peaks in the Activity window.
5. Click Save.
To exclude parts of the include window, select the Configure Excluded Windows and position the exclude window within the
include window.
To delete an include or exclude window, select the window in the list of windows and click Del.

•
To trigger on small objects or movements, use several small motion detection windows rather than one large window
and select a low object size.
•
To avoid triggering on small objects, select a high object size.
•
If no objects should appear in the Include Window, select a high history level. This will cause motion detection to trigger as
long as the object is present in the window.
•
To only detect flashing light, select a low sensitivity. In other cases high sensitivity is recommended.
Audio detection
The Axis product can be configured to generate an alarm when audio rises above or falls below the threshold value. The threshold
value can be set in the range 0–100 where 0 is the most sensitive and 100 the least sensitive.

IEEE 802.1X
IEEE 802.1X is a standard for port-based Network Admission Control providing secure authentication of wired and wireless network
devices. IEEE 802.1X is based on EAP (Extensible Authentication Protocol).
To access a network protected by IEEE 802.1X, devices must authenticate themselves. The authentication is performed by a
third-party entity called an authentication server, typically a RADIUS server, examples of which are FreeRADIUS and Microsoft
Internet Authentication Service.
In Axis' implementation, the network device and the authentication server authenticate themselves with the help of digital
certificates using EAP-TLS (Extensible Authentication Protocol - Transport Layer Security). The certificates are provided by an
Certification Authority (CA). You need:
•
a CA certificate to validate the identity of the authentication server
•
a CA-signed client certificate and a private key to authenticate the network device.
To allow the network device to access a network protected by IEEE 802.1X:
1. Obtain a CA certificate, a client certificate and a client private key (contact your network administrator).
2. Go to Setup > System Options > Security > IEEE 802.1X and upload the CA certificate, the client certificate and the
client private key.
3. Under Settings, select the EAPOL version, provide your EAP identity and private key password.
4. Check the box to enable IEEE 802.1X and click Save.

NAT traversal (port mapping) for IPv4
A network router allows devices on a private network (LAN) to share a single connection to the Internet. This is done by forwarding
network traffic from the private network to the “outside”, that is, the Internet. Security on the private network (LAN) is increased
since most routers are pre-configured to stop attempts to access the private network (LAN) from the public network (Internet).
Use NAT traversal when the Axis product is located on an intranet (LAN) and you wish to make it available from the other
(WAN) side of a NAT router. With NAT traversal properly configured, all HTTP traffic to an external HTTP port in the NAT router
is forwarded to the product.
NAT traversal is configured under System Options > Network > TCP/IP > Advanced.
Note
• For NAT traversal to work, this must be supported by the router. The router must also support UPnPTM.
• The router has many different names: “NAT router”, “Network router”, “Internet Gateway”, ”Broadband router”, “Broadband
sharing device” or “Home firewall” but the essential purpose of the device is the same.
Enable/Disable - When enabled, the Axis product attempts to configure port mapping in a NAT router on your network, using UPnPTM.
Note that UPnPTM must be enabled in the product (see System Options > Network > UPnP).
Use manually selected NAT router - Select this option to manually select a NAT router and enter the IP address for the router in
the field. If no router is specified, the product automatically searches for NAT routers on your network. If more than one router is
found, the default router is selected.
Alternative HTTP port - Select this option to manually define an external HTTP port. Enter the port number in the field. If no port is
entered here, a port number is automatically selected when NAT traversal is enabled.
Note
• An alternative HTTP port can be used or be active even if NAT traversal is disabled. This is useful if your NAT router does
not support UPnP and you need to manually configure port forwarding in the NAT router.
• If you attempt to manually enter a port that is already in use, another available port is automatically selected.
• When the port is selected automatically it is displayed in this field. To change this, enter a new port number and click Save.
FTP
The FTP server running in the Axis product enables upload of new firmware, user applications, etc. The FTP server can be disabled
under System Options > Network > TCP/IP > Advanced.
41
AXIS P5532 PTZ Dome Network Camera
System Options
Note
This FTP server has nothing to do with the product’s ability to transfer images via FTP to other locations and servers.
RTSP
The RTSP server running in the Axis product allows a connecting client to start an H.264 stream. The RTSP port number can be
changed under System Options > Network > TCP/IP > Advanced. The default port is 554.
Note
H.264 video streams will not be available if the RTSP server is disabled.
SOCKS
SOCKS is a networking proxy protocol. The Axis product can be configured to use a SOCKS server to reach networks on the other
side of a firewall or proxy server. This functionality is useful if the Axis product is located on a local network behind a firewall, and
notifications, uploads, alarms, etc need to be send to a destination outside the local network (for example the Internet).
SOCKS is configured under System Options > Network > SOCKS. For more information, see the online help
.
QoS (Quality of Service)
QoS (Quality of Service) guarantees a certain level of a specified resource to selected traffic on a network. A QoS-aware network
prioritizes network traffic and provides a greater network reliability by controlling the amount of bandwidth an application may use.
The QoS settings are configured under System Options > Network > QoS. Using DSCP (Differentiated Services Codepoint) values, the
Axis product can mark the following types of traffic: live video, live audio, event/alarm traffic and management traffic.
Note
Live audio DSCP will be equal to live video DSCP if H.264 over RTSP is used.
SMTP (email)
To send email messages from the Axis product via SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol), an SMTP mail server must be set up. This
is done under System Options > Network > SMTP (email).
Enter the host names or IP addresses and port numbers for the primary and secondary mail servers in the fields provided. A From
email address is also required. If the mail server requires authentication, check Use authentication to log in to this server and enter
the necessary information.
SNMP
The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) allows remote management of network devices. An SNMP community is the
group of devices and management station running SNMP. Community names are used to identify groups.
The Axis product can be configured to support SNMP on the System Options > Network > SNMP page.
Depending on the level of security required, select the version on SNMP to use.
SNMP v1/v2 provides the lowest level of security. The community name can be specified as a password for read or read/write
access to all supported SNMP devices. The default password for the Read community is public and the default password for the
Write community is write.
Note
If HTTPS is enabled, SNMP v1 and SNMP v2c should be disabled.
Traps for SNMP v1/v2 are used by the Axis product to send messages to a management system on important events and status
changes. Check Enable traps and enter the IP address where the trap message should be sent and the Trap community that
should receive the message.

Problems setting the IP address
When using ARP/Ping
Try the installation again. The IP address must be set within two minutes after power has been
applied to the product. Ensure the Ping length is set to 408. See the Installation Guide for
detailed instructions.
The product is located on a
different subnet
If the IP address intended for the product and the IP address of the computer used to access the
product are located on different subnets, you will not be able to set the IP address. Contact your
network administrator to obtain an IP address.
The IP address is being used
by another device
Disconnect the Axis product from the network. Run the Ping command (in a Command/DOS
window, type ping and the IP address of the product:
• If you receive: Reply from <IP address>: bytes=32; time=10...
this means that the IP address may already be in use by another device on the network.
Obtain a new IP address from the network administrator and reinstall the product.
• If you receive: Request timed out, this means that the IP address is available for
use with the Axis product. Check all cabling and reinstall the product.
Possible IP address conflict
with another device on the
same subnet.
The static IP address in the Axis product is used before the DHCP server sets a dynamic address.
This means that if the same default static IP address is also used by another device, there may
be problems accessing the product.
The product cannot be accessed from a browser
Cannot log in
When HTTPS is enabled, ensure that the correct protocol (HTTP or HTTPS) is used when attempting
to log in. You may need to manually type http or https in the browser’s address field.

Performance considerations
When settings up your system, it is important to consider how various settings and situations will affect performance. Some factors
affect the amount of bandwidth (the bit rate) required, others can affect the frame rate, and some affect both. If the load on the
CPU reaches its maximum, this will also affect the frame rate.
The following factors are among the most important to consider:
•
High image resolution and/or lower compression levels result in images containing more data. Bandwidth affected.
•
Access by large numbers of Motion JPEG and/or unicast H.264 clients. Bandwidth affected.
•
Simultaneous viewing of different streams (resolution, compression) by different clients. Effect on frame rate and bandwidth.
•
Accessing Motion JPEG and H.264 video streams simultaneously. Frame rate and bandwidth affected.
•
Heavy usage of event settings affect the product’s CPU load. Frame rate affected.
•
Heavy network utilization due to poor infrastructure. Bandwidth affected.
•
Viewing on poorly performing client computers lowers perceived performance. Frame rate affected.
